Near the village of Mamousia of the Municipal Unit of Diakopto, on the right bank of the river Kerynitis, there are the remains of the ancient town of Kyrenia, which for some researchers was the citadel of the Ionic city eliki.
Apart from the city walls, the visitor can admire the Hellenistic hero, whose excavation was completed relatively recently.
The traces of the ancient city have been lost for thousands of years. Ancient Eliki was destroyed during a terrifying earthquake during 373 BC and sank into the sea. The legends around the remnants of ancient Eliki will enchant you. Some fishermen even claimed that when the waters were quiet, they could see the ruins of the city at the bottom.
Archaeologists and researchers have at times futilely discovered a solution to the waters along the beach from Tripia to Nikolaiika, while the search for ancient Eliki is now continuing on land.
The tombs of the Mycenaean Period are preserved and located at kallithea, above the Church of Zoodochos Pigi.
The department of public building of the 4th century BC is preserved at the intersection of Solomos and Rouvali streets.
